Baking School In-Depth-receive free recipes and tutorials in your inbox each month

Baking class is officially in session! Here for both the seasoned pro and beginning baker, Bake from Scratch brings you Baking School In-Depth, an educational series that delivers recipes, invaluable baking lessons, and visual tutorials straight to your inbox every month. Created to empower the home baker, Baking School In-Depth brings the classroom to your kitchen to help you conquer recipes you never thought were possible.

Baking is truly an art, a combination of both expertly combined ingredients and technique. For success in the kitchen, it’s crucial to master essential baking techniques, but also understand the ingredients you’re working with. Each month, bakers will receive a baking lesson with a corresponding ingredient breakdown, tutorial, and step-by-step images that demonstrate every technique used in the recipe. As you bake your way through each lesson, you’ll accumulate a vast array of skills—from bread to pastry to cake—and graduate as a stronger, more well-rounded home baker armed with better baking knowledge and a collection of epic recipes.

The best part? Baking School In-Depth is free! We’ve even created a Facebook group where you can share your bakes and join the Bake from Scratch baking community (linked here).

Chocolate cake, but make it sophisticated. Our Chocolate Olive Oil Cake is made with an olive oil stir-together batter that has polished cocoa notes complemented by a deep, dark ganache frosting.

Happy 4th of July! Need a delicious treat for your patriotic celebrations? Try these Roasted Berry Shortcakes!

In case you missed our Baking School with @williamssonoma last week, we created a patriotic edition of our latest #BakingSchoolInDepth module.

Then we split the glazed doughnut and added a Sweetened Whipped Cream and topped it all off with the juiciest roasted blueberries and strawberries. It's the perfect red, white, and blue treat for celebrating Independence Day! Get the recipe at the link in our profile!

This month, we are giving into all the fall feels and celebrating with fall’s favorite fruit, the apple.

The result is a sweetly spiced sensational Apple Cider Whoopie Pie, sure to be a star all autumn long.
